As creative with the (then) new film medium as anything I have watched from the post 2000s.

Subject: Experimental Stop Motion Animation of the 1920s
What a joy to find this film by Hans Richter on this site, and in an excellent mpeg2 copy! Richter (1888-1976) was a painter and film-experimenter, born in Berlin, moved to Z├╝rich in 1916 and joined the Dada movement. In 1919 he started to experiment with film together with Viking Eggeling. Richter emigrated to USA 1940. His 8 films from the 1920s can be seen at YouTube and here: http://www.ubu.com/film/richter.html.

The ghosts in "Vormittagsspuk" are bewildering rather than scary. One morning a suburban house is invaded by four flying bowler hats - the ghosts - and a series of strange events are staged in playful stop motion. The sound is lost because the sound version - with music by Paul Hindemith - was confiscated by the Nazis as "Entartete Kunst" (Degenerate art).
